EL NUEVO DIARIO, SANTO DOMINGO. – An external auditor of the Chamber of Accounts (CC) that participated in an evaluation carried out on the Patrimonial Fund of Reformed Companies (Fonper) in the period 2016-2017, reported this Wednesday that in the Technology Department of that institution, 75 employees who were registered on the payroll were missing.

Enlly Caridad Santos, who was presented as a witness by the Public Prosecutor’s Office (MP) in the Antipulpo case, told the court that the person in charge of payroll in the technology area of ​​Fonper informed her that they could not carry out the staff survey, because they observed that the number of employees registered on the payroll is not the same as the number of employees in the department.

He also said that the director of Audit of the Chamber of Accounts, Henry Batista, ordered him to stop the process on the instructions of the plenary session of that supervisory body.

It should be noted that Batista was dismissed as director of Audit of that institution and questioned by the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) in the investigations that the body carried out against members of the CC.

“I arrived as a second acting team, that is, before my team entered, there was a team, which was withdrawn due to several incidents that occurred there,” the witness explained.

When questioned by the Litigation Coordinator of the Special Prosecutor’s Office for the Prosecution of Administrative Corruption (Pepca), Mirna Ortiz, the witness explained that the first group had stopped conducting the audit because they apparently were not providing information.

“They were also receiving hostile treatment from the people who were acting as liaisons at that time between the Chamber of Accounts and the entity (Fonper), and they were not providing them with the information they needed,” he said.

The auditor clarified that the process she was involved in was a planning process, which is one of the stages of the audit phases, but that the financial auditors were already carrying out the execution part.

Another witness presented by the MP today was the former Vice Minister of the Treasury of the Ministry of Finance, Rafael Gómez Medina.

The Second Collegiate Court of the National District adjourned the Antipulpo trial until Monday, July 8, starting at 9:00 a.m. The prosecution will continue presenting witnesses.

In this case, the main defendant is Alexis Medina, brother of former President Danilo Medina, who is accused of creating a network that joined together to steal almost five billion pesos from the public treasury.
